Fresh From the Farm

Agriculture has long been a staple of the NewayGo County economy. One reason why Gerber Baby Food put the area on the map was because of its relationship with local farmers.  You’ll see the same focus on agriculture and locally produced fruits and vegetables at various farmers’ markets throughout the County.  Taste the pure deliciousness of NewayGo County farm stands and farmers’ markets.
